After all of these dings...I consider myself really lucky to even be on the wait-list with my numbers. I guess applying really early did help in this case. Sorry to hear all the bad news in any event.

I withdrew my application with a heavy heart. It's not easy to let go of a full scholarship. I hope that my seat and scholarship will go to one of you awesome TLS people.

Hey Guys. I hope everyone is doing well. This is just a quick favor to all of those who pretty much know they will not be attending UConn. Would you be kind enough to withdraw your application at your earliest convenience? I know there are many on this board who aspire to attend UConn, and it would go along way for us if you could do this.

Thanks much guys and I wish everyone the best.

I've already withdrawn but just as an FYI, withdrawing at this point won't affect your cycle in any way except possibly where money is concerned. Schools know that they have to accept a certain number of people to fill a class in UConn's case about 1600 to get 200. So just because a few people withdraw prior to the deposit deadline it doesn't improve your chances. After the deposit deadline is when they'll re-evaluate based on the number of people that deposited. Don't guilt people into withdrawing because even if they're sure they're 99% going elsewhere there might still be that 1% chance they'll go to UConn and you get nothing out of getting them to withdraw. I was accepted back in December with a full scholarship and just withdrew last week because I was emotionally attached to UConn, to the scholarship and to the people at UConn that I had met. Likewise, others could be experiencing the same thing.

Last year they had 2,025 applicants...how could they accept 1,600 to get the entering class of 182? That would be the highest acceptance rate and the worst yield rate in the country. And, for what it's worth, I did already get in off of another WL (Rutgers-Newark) this cycle...a month ahead of their deposit deadline. Not saying I disagree with your overall point that people shouldn't pull off of a WL without making 100% sure you don't want to go but I just wanted to share that I have had a slightly different experience.

In 2010, they took 710 (https://officialguide.lsac.org/Release/ ... lData.aspx), and enrolled 186.

JoeMo's advice still stands, though. You're not gonna get anywhere until the deposits/withdrawals start coming in.

That is what their dean said at the Open House she was very open about the number of acceptances they'd need to send out to get that many people in.

Yours might have been a lot more like the exception to the rule or perhaps Rutgers just does things differently but the majority of people that end up on a waitlist don't hear back until after deposit deadlines have passed. And the majority of people that haven't been decided on won't be affected because some people withdrew because in general they accept a relatively large pool knowing that people will withdraw.

Also, I don't think that 2025 counts the part-timers but I might be mistaken.

Oh ok, it's definitely possible that I could've missed one of the numbers. Maybe she said they were expecting 1600 apps, had to accept a certain percentage and would get 200 matriculants.

Oh I agree...I think part of me is just hoping that we hear something sooner because I want some certainty. But realistically I realize this is probably going to drag into April or May.

Yeah I am pretty certain they won't re-evaluate their waitlist until late April/early May considering their blatant procrastination and douchebaggery for making people wait longer than usual.

Sorry, if you can't tell, I'm super bitter being on the waitlist and just waiting for them to actually make a decision. If the Cardozo May program accepts me, I will probably have to choose to attend there before I even hear from UConn, and this makes me a sad, sad panda.

I'm withdrawing this week.
Disappointed not to get a scholly: my numbers are well above 75th percentile and excellent softs, with strong reasons for choosing UCONN

For anyone trying to negotiate with UCONN, make sure you check the math they send you back. They used the regional rate for me when comparing my other offers instead of the out of state rate. They corrected it once I caught them but just double check.

They're not done finalizing all scholarship offers. Plus, there are a few of us that have withdrawn lately with good scholarships (mine was full tuition, someone else was too) if you really want to go to UConn wait a few more weeks.

Also, I'm sure if you e-mail Dean DeMeola (who is incredibly nice) she might be able to tell you if they're still considering you for scholarship money.

I emailed them yesterday and they said the funds are "encumbered" as admitted students who may have been offered scholarships decide not to attend, monies will be reallocated.

I am a CT resident so UConn is a tempting offer depending on money but as I am above both 75% I should

So their deposit deadline is probably when money will be freed up then. Worth waiting if they're your #1.

When I saw that out-of-state tuition for the upcoming academic year rose to $47,000+ I nearly fainted. Thank goodness for the first year scholarship...

Oh and just a head's up, the Class of 2011 Employment Statistics Data is up. The stats are much more detailed than the Class of 2010's.

Those numbers don't look too bad considering C/O 2011 was supposed to be the hardest hit. I'm surprised that only 179 people graduated (I thought they had slightly bigger classes) and am wondering what the 6% percent of people who are not looking for a job are doing.
